For example, if one’s best static time is four minutes, can one reasonably predict that you are then capable of doing four lengths (of a 25m pool) dynamic with fins, have the potential to dive to forty meters in the constant weight discipline, and dive to say 30 meters with No Fins

Hence a ratio of 4:4:4:3 assuming units of minutes, number of 25m lengths, increments of 10 meters, increments of 10 meters

Until recently this ratio held for me, until some good gains in my No Fins PB (40m) failed to translate into gains in my dynamic with fins PB (4 lengths, 100m) and my Constant Weight PB (45m). I'm not quite sure why, suspect its primarily pschological, but I'm clearly keen on getting the "ratio" back on track.

It would be interesting to see ratios for others and do some statistical analysis on the relationships. Anyone keen to contribute their ratios? Write in the following order, using normal units of measurment:

Static PB (in Minutes and Seconds), Dynamic With Fins PB (Meters), Constant Weight (Meters), No Fins (Meters)

I assume that the points system must work on some assumptions of these ratios. Does anyone know what they are?
